Treatment of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) in Japan has recently changed, from oral prednisolone (oPSL) to tonsillectomy plus steroid pulse (TSP) therapy. However, a few studies have compared their efficacy and safety. IgAN patients diagnosed in our institution between 1991 and 2013, treated with TSP or oPSL, aged ≥16 years, with ≥1 g/day proteinuria, and(More)
Aberrant biceps brachii muscles (BB); the right aberrant head, the left aberrant head, and the left aberrant bundle, were observed bilaterally in a 94-year-old Japanese female cadaver during a regional anatomy of the upper extremities. We examined the nerve supply as well as scrutinizing these aberrant BB. The branches to the right aberrant head and the(More)
Whether to perform a renal biopsy for isolated hematuria remains a matter of controversy. We performed renal biopsy in hematuria without overt proteinuria patients and reported the proportion of glomerulonephritis, pathological activities, and statistical analysis of indicators associated with glomerulonephritis. Among 203 patients who underwent renal(More)
Five cases of recurrent immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) after kidney transplantation were successfully treated by tonsillectomy and steroid pulse therapy (SPT). The clinical background and pathology in the five cases were different, but good results were obtained in all of them. In cases 1 and 2, mild recurrent IgAN developed and failed to remit after(More)
A 66-year-old man presented with a penile ulcer, an acute clinical onset of nephrotic syndrome and hepatitis. Secondary syphilis was diagnosed on the basis of the history of rash and the result of strongly positive serological test for syphilis. A renal biopsy demonstrated membranous glomerulonephritis with subepithelial electron-dense deposits. After(More)
